That's my paranoid 2c.

Stay safe.
I saw a program on Court TV about a lady who was stalked by an "internet buddy". He told her that he lived in TX (which turned out to true); she lived on the east coast (I forget which state). One day, she answered the knock at her door and IT WAS HIM!!! Unannounced...uninvited ... Ew!! :x You can just imagine how her life was turned topsy turvey by this wacko; it took the show one hour to cover the tale.
